The legend Errol Dunkley is back in the UK. In this 2020 tour he will be performing hits like “Ok Fred”, “You Gonna Need Me”, A Little Way Different” and more, backed by the band Dub Natty Sessions.
Dunkley’s recording career began in 1965, when he was 14, with “Gypsy” (a duet with Roy Shirley) for Linden Pottinger’s Gaydisc label, “My Queen” (with Junior English) for Prince Buster, and “Love Me Forever” on the Rio label. From 1967 to 1968, he recorded several singles for Joe Gibbs, including “Please Stop Your Lying” (1967) and “Love Brother” (1968), before switching to Coxsone Dodd in 1969.
In the early 1970s, with Gregory Isaacs, he formed the African Museum record label. Isaacs soon took sole control of the label, and Dunkley formed Silver Ring, a new label. In 1972, he teamed up with producer Jimmy Radway for two of his most popular singles, “Keep the Pressure Down” and “Black Cinderella”. The same year saw the release of Dunkley’s debut album, Presenting Errol Dunkley, produced by Sonia Pottinger, which included the track “A Little Way Different”.
Dunkley continued to record throughout the 1970s and toward the end of the decade his popularity in the UK grew, resulting in a breakthrough UK Singles Chart hit in 1979 with “OK Fred”, a cover version of a song written by John Holt, that reached number 11. His 1980 release “Sit Down And Cry” also reached the charts.
Dub Natty Sessions play original Roots Reggae Dub and work with international reggae artists such as Dennis Bovell, Mad Professor (who mixed our recent second album), Brinsley Forde (Lead singer from Aswad), Henry “Matic Horns” Tenyue (Trombonist with Aswad, UB40 etc.), and Jamaican Artists (U-Roy, Big Youth).
This is a standing show. Presented by Natty Sessions.
